Branding Leadership Team is excited about the number of people who are
taking the Downtown Chesterton Usage survey. The goal of the survey is to
determine why people currently visit downtown Chesterton and how long they
stay. The CBLT also wants to know what new businesses, events, festivals,
and activities residents and visitors would like to see in downtown
Lorelei Weimer, of
Indiana Dunes Tourism and a member of the CBLT, said she is “pleasantly
surprised” by how many people are taking time to complete the survey.
However, she has concerns about two different age groups that are not
represented--individuals who are 21 years old and under and individuals who
are 73 and older. Weimer noted that "downtown Chesterton is for all age
groups and it's important we hear from everyone. Our goal is to increase the
number of completed surveys from these two age groups."
Currently, of the
surveys completed, only 2.44 percent have been completed by individuals who
are 21 and under, and only 2.10 percent by individuals 73 and older.
these age categories, are encouraged to take the survey. The survey is only
13 questions and should take five minutes or less to complete. The survey
